The first scene in Baker Street is a nod to Granada Television's "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" (1984) series, starring Jeremy Brett. In the scene, the camera focuses on a "Baker Street" street sign, then tracks backward down the street and over a clopping horse pulling a carriage. This same camera shot and angle - with the overhead tracking shot over a horse and carriage - was used to reveal Baker Street in the opening credits sequence of the Granada TV series.
